Okay, here's a little poll to gauge your opinions on which country currently turns out the best horror movies. Feel free to vote and also write about your opinions.

Where else can you get world wide known icons such as Jason Voorhees, Freddy Kruger, Michael Myers, Leatherface and Chucky?

Honestly, Matt, you're not convincing me here.

Ijn order to pick who the best country for horror movies is, you really have to ask what you're looking for.

Japanese horror movies, IMHO, have the shittiest stories. Yet the director and cinematography can make make drinking a glass of water a scary experience. Looking at your list, above, of what is scary, I have to ask you this:

What if Takashi Shimizu directed A Nightmare on Elm Street?

It didn't ask for "scariest" it asked for "Best" and I'll take a Friday the 13th marathon over most anything.
Personally most of the horror people call "the best" i.e. High Tension, Audition, Blair Witch Project, Wolf Creek, are utter garbage in my opinion.

That's true, but I don't consider your choices as 'the best.'

FWIW, I think The Blair Witch Project is one of the beter movies to come around in recent decades. It was fresh and realistic, something that Hollywood doesn't do often.

It's interesting, to me, that the good ole USA is #1 in this poll.

No India?
You are right, WOG. There aren't much scary films in India and it doesnot deserve to be the part of the poll. I voted South Korea.

I find myself in a difficult dilema, choosing between the United States, United Kingdom, or Japan. With long thought, I will have to go with the USA's horror movies.

United States it is for my vote.

I like spanish horror films. La habitacion del nino and REC are great examples of great spanish horror films. They have the cheesiest scenarios and most simple, but they can make them scary easy. I mean of course I love horror films made in the US, but spanish ones are great out of foreign films.

Voted for Japan, mostly out of a love of giant rampaging such-and-suches.

Has anyone seen the horror flicks coming out of Thailand in recent years? They're really starting to produce some quality work.

Yes they are. Thailand is definitely coming into its own when it comes to horror movies.

I voted for the US though I think that France, Australia and South Korea both make some very very good horror movies.
